    it were to females? I thought it was a pair.

    if it really are 2 females, I'm happier than with a pair.
    MS doesn't have the space to keep a group as suggested by the EEP, but with AI, 2 females could be useful.

    They had 1.2 oldie individuals, all wild-caught in South Africa and born between 1966 and 1968. They "disappeared" … around March 2011. The new group started arriving in August 2012.
